    Naturevolume 135page951 (1935) | Download Citation



    THE special South Africa supplement of The Times, presented with the issue of May 31, deserves mention for its wealth of interest and its authoritative articles. Published to commemorate the silver jubilee of the Union of South Africa, the supplement reviews the progress of the Dominion during the last twenty-five years. Articles on agriculture, mining, migration, education, wild-life and native affairs are particularly noteworthy; but other sides of South African life, such as finance, architecture, sport, communications and holiday resorts are not Omitted. Altogether, the supplement, which runs to thirty pages and is illustrated with maps and photographs, may be regarded as an important ‘volume’ on all aspects of South Africa, and one of permanent value.
